“Eris Wakes" the album-was written during the worldwide pandemic in 2021. It represents the current rebellious transitional unstable times we are in. Eris is the Goddess warrior of discord and chaos, a dwarf
planet, the Star Child, the trans-Neptunian object. Her energy flowed freely through Violet Nox during the creation of this album to harness an uninhibited depth of psychic reflections and hidden shadows from which the essence of “Eris Wakes” tunes and harmonizes.
